British Horse Society needs your support to improve access routes

14 May 2013


The British Horse Society’s Cheshire Committee is looking for volunteers to support the Society’s work in improving and increasing access and bridleways in the local area.

Bridleway imageIf you are passionate about ensuring bridleways and access routes are maintained for the future so they provide a safe route for horses, riders and carriage drivers to enjoy, then the BHS Cheshire committee needs your support.

The committee is looking for volunteers in the local area to help with the important work the Society does in improving and increasing access and bridleways. There are currently District Access and Bridleways Officer vacancies on the BHS Cheshire committee for each of the following areas: Congleton, Crewe and Nantwich, Vale Royal, City of Chester, Warrington, Halton and Macclesfield.

The role of the District Access and Bridleways Officer (DABO) is to be the main point of contact in your area, supporting the County Access and Bridleway Officer (CABO) in liaising with local authorities, landowners, members of the public and local access and bridleway groups.

Bridleways PictureYou can commit as much time to the role as you are able and training and support is available to help you. District officers are always welcome, but do not have to attend committee meetings, the key is having the support network across the county.

However, committee members must be members of The British Horse Society. If you are interested and would like to find out more, contact Jessica Clark ( or take a look at our volunteering pages.

If you do not want to be a BHS committee member but believe in improving and increasing off-road access for equestrians in Cheshire, then help us by being our eyes and ears – we need information!

Let us know what is happening with the bridleways in your area – is there a good route available? Are there obstructions which make your local bridleway difficult or dangerous to use?

Let us know by contacting Jessica Clark (details above) or find us on Facebook.

Please wait while we complete your membership
